Former Net and New York City basketball legend Kenny Anderson has been released from the hospital after suffering a stroke over the weekend.
"We would like to thank everyone for reaching out on behalf of Kenny," Natasha Anderson, Kenny's wife, said in a statement. "Our family is extremely grateful for all the prayers and love that we have received over the last few days. We appreciate you continuing to respect our privacy as Kenny heals."
The 48-year-old Anderson was the No. 2 overall pick in the 1991 NBA Draft by the Nets, for which he played the first four-plus seasons of his 14-year career. The point guard was an All-Star with the Nets during the 1993-94 season.
The Queens native, who played for Archbishop Molloy under longtime coach Jack Curran, was named New York State Mr. Basketball in 1989 before playing for Georgia Tech.
Anderson is the head coach at Fisk University, an NAIA school in Nashville. Their season ended on Feb. 18.
